  6. Stellar occultation by asteroid Ultima Thule in Senegal: an opportunity to promote astronomy in Africa

    Date de publication:

    27 Juillet 2018

    On the night of 3–4 August 2018, American, French and Senegalese scientists will be in Senegal to observe as asteroid Ultima Thule (2014 MU69) passes between Earth and a distant star, a phenomenon called stellar occultation, before NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft performs a flyby of this object on 1 January 2019. This observation campaign involves researchers from CNRS, the French national scientific research centre, and the IRD development research institute, with financial support from CNES and the French Embassy in Senegal. The campaign is a chance to promote science culture and raise public awareness around an astronomical event of global interest.

  7. Intense sequence for CNES, DLR and JAXA- Hayabusa2 and MASCOT arrive at asteroid Ryugu

    Date de publication:

    27 Juin 2018

    The Japanese Hayabusa2 space probe has reached the end of its 3.2-billion-kilometre journey with its passenger, the French-German MASCOT (Mobile Asteroid Surface Scout) lander. Launched in 2014, Hayabusa2 has completed three orbits of the Sun in four years, after which it began a few weeks ago its very slow approach to its final destination. Since today, Hayabusa2 is now escorting Ryugu at a close distance of some 20 kilometres, collecting images and data from this celestial object that spins on itself in a little more than seven and a half hours. MASCOT is scheduled to land on the asteroid in early October.
